Mumbai, Feb 2 (IANS) Actor Manish Goel, who has marked his comeback on television after three years with ‘Kyunki…Saas Maa Bahu Beti Hoti Hai’, has opened up on his cameo role, calling it a different and unique idea for him as an artist.

Dhiren is shown in flashbacks, and the upcoming track will eventually unveil a hidden secret about a very pivotal character of the show.
Talking about the same, Manish said: “I have been part of the industry for almost 20 years now, and this is for the first time I am playing a character that has already passed away in the show, Dhiren Rajgaur – Ambika’s late husband.”
“It is a very different and unique idea for me as an actor. Although it is a cameo role, I am returning to television after three years, and I am ecstatic to work with Manasi, she is a very close friend. I have been part of two shows with her, and since then we share a great bond,” said the ‘Ghar Ek Mandir’ actor.
He added: “My character- Dhiren will reveal an extremely important and well-kept secret of 26 years which will surely keep the audience on the edge of their seats.”
